Mario Como is Professor of Structural Engineering at Department of Civil Engineering of University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. He became professor in 1971 and has taught mechanics, strength of materials, and structural and earthquake engineering, in various Italian universities. He joined the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" in 1985. He is author and coauthor of more than 150 scientific articles in the field of the theory of elastic stability, plastic buckling, the theory of plasticity. structural and earthquake engineering, the aerodynamics of long-span bridges, and the mechanics of masonry structures and monuments. He authored a book on the theory of stability and is coauthor of two other hooks on the matrix analysis of structures and earthquake engineering.


Main research field: Static analysis of masonry structures, earthquake engineering, strength of materials
